In this classic poor man’s soup, day-old bread is cooked together with enough tomato and meat broth to flavor it. This simple combination of basic ingredients is so good that today it can be found at some of the finest restaurants (priced at many times the actual cost of its ingredients, by the way). Pappa also refers to baby food, and this soup makes an excellent meal for the one-year-old crowd (ours certainly approved).
